1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

$\lim_{x\rightarrow3} \stackrel{(t+1)^2}{(t^2+1)}$

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

if the bottom was t^2 - 1 i could factorise and cancel but when its t^2+1 im not sure how to go...

Here's you limit.

Note: for fractions, use \frac{}{}, not \stackrel{}{}

$$\lim_{x \to 3} \frac{(t+1)^2}{(t^2+1)}$$

You can evaluate this limit directly.
